Head to Piazza San Marco, which is surrounded by elegant architecture. Here you will find the Basilica di San Marco, Venice's iconic cathedral. For truly breathtaking sights, buy a ticket to the top to admire the square from above; the views are especially magical at sunset!
Cicchetti is probably the most popular food in Venice, where taking time to enjoy some small aperitivo snacks at a wine bar before dinner is a popular event. Like many other cities in Italy, an aperitivo often consists of an Aperol spritz or prosecco too!
For main meals, located next to the sea, Venice is known for its seafood such as sarde in soar (sweet and sour sardines) and possibly one of the most Venetian dishes around, risotto al nero di seppia. This is a unique dish where squid ink is used to give a jet black colour to the rice, and is combined with wine, onions and tomatoes.
